About

The Tyla Dance or "Pop Like This Pt. 2 (Slowed)" Dance is a TikTok dance trend inspired by South African singer-songwriter Tyla. The dance, which is set to a slowed-down version of the song "Pop like this Pt. 2" by CPK Shawn, has participants sway their hips and twerk while smoothly moving sideways along the floor. The dance was popularized throughout June 2024 and is inspired by a video of Tyla performing a similar dance on-stage during a concert. Notably, the trend inspired discourse about TikToker @laurasophiasotopr, known as the Blue Sweatpants Girl, as users began to thirst for her following her viral video performing the dance.
